  1. Cobb to Orioles (Confirmed by Roch Kubatko)

    It sure looks like we have a good supply of young hitters and will be at least average defensively in the outfield and catcher with some depth. Looking into 2019 and beyond, the keys to staying over .500 would seem to be extending Schoop, flipping one of those hitters for an infielder and the development of Jose Reyes.
  2. Place yer bets! (aka, the Pete Rose thread)

    Depends on how much time, if any, Mullins spends in Baltimore.
  3. TT: Predicting the Opening Day Roster

    Didn't show well enough this spring or just being stretched out?

    Where's Castro?
  5. Long Article About Sammy Stewart

    I had known about his self-inflicted troubles but not the tragedies of having two children die of cystic fibrosis. Check out this article from Citizen Times: MLB pitcher Sammy Stewart had 'a really big heart,' despite drug and legal problems https://www.citizen-times.com/story/news/local/2018/03/05/sammy-stewart-sister-amid-legal-drug-troubles-ex-mlb-pitcher-had-really-big-heart/394785002/

    A character in the ne t Star Wars movie?
  7. Tillman back. Are we happy?

    They are also showing Hope. It remains to be seen whether it will turn out to be Charity.
  8. What was our record in games Hays started?

    Of course we had a crappy record in games Hays started. He’s an OF not a pitcher

  10. Are There Three Internal SP Candidates

    Define “candidate.” Chelsea Manning is a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
  11. Miguel Castro has a fourth option available for 2018

    My snark wasn’t aimed at Yardball, but at the sucky situation we find ourself in. Your reasoning is typically insightful and, and, for me, hope springs eternal that there might be lemonade in some of those lemons.

    What about that rotation “sounds good”to you?
  13. Os requesting offers on Machado

    A dispassionate, level-headed analysis that I hope is right. Certainly bragging rights is a big reason a rich successful owner might go all in to win a WS. The other is money. Has anyone ever seen estimates of the economic value of winning a WS?
  14. Tear it down

    Lived there for a few years and went to a couple of O’s games. The place is a pit.
